Have you played the Images ...? Without undue vanity, I believe that these three pieces can hold their own and will assume a place in the pianoliterature ... to the left of Schumann or to the right of Chopin ... as you like it. Thus wrote Debussy in a letter to his publisher and frien d Jacques Durand in 1905. Debussys prophecy was to become true. The pieces have become a fixed part of piano repertoire. Incidentally: for the slow movement Hommage a Rameau Debussy, an innovator who was still awareof tradition, was inspired by a performance of Castor et Pollux in 1903.
